It's Not The Blog...

...That's the problem. It's everything else. I'd rather not have this place, a good place albeit full of critical thoughts, skepticism, and occasional melancholy, bear the weight of pure malcontent.

I simply won't write when all that is on my mind and plate is trouble of one kind or another. But there are a few good things and they deserve mention:

My wife. It isn't said nearly enough that she is the best part of my life. My friends and family whose support over the last 20 years has made everything possible. My art has kept me thinking and focused (in two exhibits currently). The garden, any, where lessons on how to live are masterfully rewritten.


  1. I lurk. I love your blog. I don't know you, and although your studio is in my neighborhood, you could walk by me every day and I wouldn't know who you are. And yet, your blog is usually the first I check at the end of the day, when I put my feet up and look to sir internet for relaxation and distraction.

    Good luck working through the bad stuff, whatever it is. None of my business. But you've got more people rooting for you than you know.

    1. Deeply appreciated. It's good to know people are reading. Seriously.

  2. Frank, I hope you come through to the other side soon and whole. And if there's anything I can do to help, please let me know. I know we've never met, but I care.

  3. Thanks Ellen. I don't want to be overly dramatic. Our problems are common to people without means in this town. We'll figure it out, but I usually want to write what's on my mind and this stuff isn't write worthy. But I didn't want te blog to go silent.


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
